New piece for the Girls Series, “Girl in White”. Also the first time I have used the reference that I took last month of Seraphina. I loved the picture of her with her head thrown back, but it reminded me a bit too much of a glamour shot. The picture of her looking straight at the viewer feels so confident, it is almost a challenge. I thought the two layered together would be more interesting than either one apart.
Work in progress - new drawing for the Girls series experimenting with double exposure. I took hundreds of photos during this shoot. Many are just a slight movement from one picture to the next. This whole series is very influenced by photographic effects and using them as an inspiration to depart from traditional observed reality. Now, I have to figure out how to finish the drawing.
I’m excited to announce that I am now represented in Austin, TX by Wally Workman gallery! Wally has been instrumental in creating a serious market for art in Austin since the gallery opened in 1980 (32 years!). Some of the pieces from my Girls series will be showing during the upcoming summer group exhibition, “100 Degrees”. The gallery shows some very talented contemporary representational artists. I’m looking forwarding to seeing how my work is received.
